During his long career, Joe Pass's advanced harmonic knowledge and seemingly endless well of melodic ideas made him the premier accompanist for the top singers and soloists in the world of jazz including Les McCaan, Ella Fitzgerald, Chet Baker, Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown, and Milt Jackson. The Joe Pass Emperor II PRO is a fitting tribute to Joe, who was a great inspiration and friend to Epiphone and guitarists throughout the world.

CUSTOMER
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Sound: Looking for an affordable jazz box, one that had a lot of "air" around the notes, had that "amp in the other room" woody, sound. This one is it. Replaced the stock strings with flat wound chrome 11's. There's the sound I wanted! Volume and tone knobs dimed on the guitar, 50 watt tube amp (lots of headroom), volume as high as you can without feedback, Bass-7,Mid-7,Treb-3-4, Rev-3, Pres-1-2. The tones that I was looking for. Feature: Love the pickups. Hot enough for my liking. Split coil may come in handy. Real interesting tones when alternately splitting coils while using both pickups. Ease of Use: The action out of the box was really good. A little concerned after I replaced the strings. Had to raise the height of the first three strings. Easy enough. Had a little more bow in the neck than I care for after I changed the strings. Left the guitar in an air conditioned room overnight. The action was PERFECT in the morning. No truss rod adjustments needed. I like a low action. Quality: The quality out of the box was perfect. There was a very small smudge on the finish on the back of the guitar where it must have rubbed the packing bag during shipment in the box. I honestly don't know how that could ever be avoided. Anyhow, a little polish and it was gone. This guitar is beautiful! Was gonna wait till July for a wine red model. So glad I didn't and got this one! Absolutely beautiful color combination. Much nicer in person. I know sunburst guitars probably all differ a little bit in color. The colors on mine seem to blend very nicely. Beautiful five-layer bindings all around. The tuners seem smooth and even while adjusting. The grooves in the nut look even and true. The "C" shaped neck fits my hand ( a little small) fine. No complaints about the hardware. Knobs turn smoothly. Huge headstock. I'm sure it makes a big contribution to the sound too. Value: Compared prices on similar guitars made by different manufacturers. Have always heard a lot of good reviews about Epis, never owned one before. The price for this model was comparable. Used the 6 month "play while u pay" financing. Very easy, no credit checks to affect the credit score for a luxury item. No interest either. I like it. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had reason to find out. Hopefully, it stays that way. No comment The Wow Factor: Great looking guitar, Looks very vintage, very " rich", for such an affordable instrument. Overall: See items above.
Style of Music: Rock, blues, light jazz, easy listening.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: Excellent guitar at its price point. Easy to play nut to 20th fret. Very good contemporary jazz sound with a set of D'Addario ECG24s. I had to tighten 3 tuner nuts, adjust the truss rod to get rid of the hump in the neck and set the intonation by adjusting the bride. All easy tasks and to be expected on most electric guitars.
Style of Music: Jazz. Kind of between contemporary jazz and smooth jazz.
